When your cruise ship drops anchor in Livorno, maximize your time in Italy on a full-day shore excursion to Pisa and Florence. Ideal for travelers with limited time, this tour covers the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa and takes you to Florence’s Duomo and Santa Croce Basilica, the divinely decorated final resting place of Michelangelo and Galileo. Enjoy free time to visit Florence’s museums, shops, and cafes, and relish the convenience of port pickup and drop-off well in advance of your ship’s departure.
As soon as your cruise ship sails into Livorno Cruise Port, you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle and greet your driver. Following a 30-minute drive, you’ll arrive in Pisa — home to the world-renowned Leaning Tower of Pisa — where you’ll have time to capture photographs in front of the architectural icon.
During your stop, you’ll also have time to visit other Pisa attractions including the Baptistery and the Cathedral before you continue to Florence.
Following a 1-hour drive through the Tuscany's scenic hills, you’ll disembark in the Renaissance treasure trove of Florence. Stop first at Piazzale Michelangelo for panoramic views of Florence and then head to the final resting places of Michelangelo and Galileo at the Santa Croce Basilica, the world’s largest Franciscan church.
See, too, the ancient Ponte Vecchio Bridge before culminating your sightseeing experience at Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori), topped majestically by the terracotta dome designed by Brunelleschi in the 15th century.
Following free time to enjoy Florence’s cafes, shops, and squares, you’ll travel back to Livorno Cruise Port to embark your cruise ship.
